LB Kendall Moore (6-3 231) of Raleigh Thursday trimmed his list to a final seven after consulting with his coach and parents. The remaining teams on his list are USC, Clemson, Notre Dame, Florida State, NC State, Duke and Maryland. There is no preference order at this time.
Moore said a big reason USC made the cut is his relationship with recruiter Brad Lawing. "I like coach Lawing a lot and what he's trying to do defensively with me," Moore said. "We like the position he's talking about playing me."
Moore said he also has a good relationship with his Clemson recruiters. "I've been talking a lot with coach Powell and coach Pearman," he said. "Coach Pearman was actually the first recruiter to talk to me when he was at Maryland. He told me they are doing big things there (Clemson), too."
Moore will visit Notre Dame June 26th. He will also go to a camp at Tennessee and will visit USC. There is no favorite.
